Somater has designed a 100% PE tube with a 220/11µ lightened PBL skirt contributing to Expanscience’s commitments as an expert in dermo-cosmetics and a company with a mission, certified B Corp.
Recyclability and lightweighting first and foremost
Somater has been awarded the lightweighting of the Mustela 123 diaper cream tube. The 50 ml, 100 ml and 150 ml formats are now made from a lightweight PBL web, replacing the ABL used until now. In addition to reducing the amount of material used, the switch to PBL significantly improves the recyclability of the packaging thanks to its PE composition.
A circular approach to packaging life
Mustela, a committed brand wishing to contribute to achieving global climate objectives by 2050, eco-designs its products taking into account their life cycle. To this end, the brand is looking for recyclable, lightweight packaging to optimise the formula/material ratio. This lightweight tube, manufactured by Plastuni Lisses in Essonne (91), reduces the plastic content by reducing the thickness of the skirt, while maintaining the barriers needed to preserve the cream. The tube is decorated using flexography.
